Gunfight Video: 10 Lessons Learned

1)Carry a gun,  a FIGHTING gun, not a microsubcompactnano pocket carry special in 25 ACP with a capacity of 2+1.
2)Train. A lot.
3)Awareness. Enough of it and you may even avoid the fight entirely.
4)Apendix carry isnt that great. Its more obvious when drawing and that can get you killed. Stick to strong side, 4 oclock.
5)When shooting, shoot to kill and shoot a LOT.
6)If you’re not shooting, get out of the way (like his wife did)
7)Even at just a foot away, you can still miss.
8)Down doesn’t mean dead. Make sure he’s no longer a threat, kick his gun away.
9)Look for his friends, there may be more.
10)Brazilian cops do NOT mess around.

We in the US don't say "shoot to kill". That can cause legal problems with prosecutors. We say "shoot to stop". The reason is intent. Shoot to stop implies you did not want to "kill a bad guy" ie revenge. Some law types like to run up charges to make themselves look good and get a reputation. How is Spain going? It's really COLD here. My feet are frozen. Ken

The cop didn't appendix carry because he has a beer belly and it's tough to draw and uncomfortable to carry in the appendix position when you have a gut.

It looks like it might be appendix carry to me. His gut helped hide the draw.

That close, my tendency would be to use my left hand to deflect the assailant's gun upward, and shoot with right hand only. I don't know if that makes sense...

He left a very nice death mask, eyes open etc.... But only 1 was killed
